Re: New Project " help Please" Honda st1300 Conversion

I am not trying to start a fight here, I just try to understand what a gearbox brings to the table. I guess everyone has a different point of view when it comes to riding fun. In Europe most people have manual gearboxes for cars and automatic gearboxes are the exception. It's not that we can't buil...

Re: New Project " help Please" Honda st1300 Conversion

Keeping the gearbox is, in my opinion, a good idea. This way you can maximize the torque on the wheel, maximize your top speed and, possibly, optimize your cruise speed efficiency by avoiding using flux weakening. It will also be funnier to drive, that's something most people seem to forgot somehow....

Re: Mobipus Controller Write Parameter to Controller issue

Good luck with Mobipus.... Their password system is a huge pain. I can't remember for sure what were the passwords. Something like "Mobipus" was unlocking the "user Mode" (whatever that was, not sure it will be enough for you but as I recall you would be able to set a few parameters, like throttle, ...

Re: Vespa PX200E conversion

9KW electric is not really comparable with 9KW gas powered. The torque is much greater with an electric motor, so you can get away with far less than this. Don't go for a 8KW motor on this thing, that's completely ridiculous, you will never be able to supply it with enough power (or if you can, then...

Re: APL's DIY axial-flux motor

@APL my two cents: don't spend too much time on the cooling fans theory. I'm not sure yet which design you are settling on for your motor, but if it is anything similar to your previous one, then I suggest you to consider the following option: 3D print some covers. This way, you could very easily ex...

Might be a few millimeters though, now that I look at it. Should be enough? Yeah that should work fine. What you want is a bit of air flow, primary goal is to use energy to get the bike moving, not making a gigantic fan ;-) Air has a very low viscosity so it will find its way between any tiny gaps ...

Re: Is it practical/possible to put larger wheels on an e scooter?

Looks like you bought the wrong vehicle. No it won't be practical to increase the tire size. Your front is already at the limit under max compression. Figure out what you want first, THEN build or buy. Pretty sure he can. It looks like the fork tubes can be moved down a bit. It will slightly change...

Re: Quick but too quick!

You can also check your wiring and see if your controller has a "smooth start" wire. Some of them do, the purpose of it is to limit the power at startup so that it is less jumpy. I can't see much in the picture you posted, it is way too small. Also, before doing any mods, I suggest you to check your...

Re: Help with battery size

I would disconnect the BMS entirely, plug the battery directly to the controller and see if the motor works. That way you can make sure the problem comes from the BMS or if you also have an other problem somewhere else. I never used this particular BMS and it doesn't seem to be a bluetooth one, so I...

Re: APL's DIY axial-flux motor

Is there any advantage for you to go for a coreless motor? Aside from being lighter, which I guess doesn't matter so much on your build since your motor is inboard, what would be the advantage? I'm not really familiar with these motors, so correct me if I'm wrong, but I assume these have much less t...

Ampacity choices are 50A/80A/100A/120A How can it withstand 600A? No idea where you got these choices values, but I have the 300A version. See here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32826820690.html It is marketed at 300A but you can put much higher values in the firmware. We got it working at 600A ...
